Toshiba comes to the rescue with station programme

Toshiba is supplying AC equipment as part of major re-fit of Fire and Rescue Service stations in the North of England

A total of 21 new fire stations are being rolled out, replacing outdated facilities.

To date, 15 of the fire stations have been equipped with high efficiency Toshiba air conditioning, with remaining sites awaiting completion and fit-out towards the end of this year and early 2013.

All stations have a combination of Toshiba’s 3-pipe VRF and split systems, with the design satisfying the requirements of EN378 and Part L of the Building Regulations 2006 and 2010.

As well as serving office accommodation and rest rooms, the Toshiba units provide cooling for the stations’ communications and server facilities, essential to rapid deployment, and control and command support.

In line with a philosophy of continuous improvement, the final five stations will be equipped with Toshiba air source heat pumps in place of gas boiler heating for corridors, plus Toshiba’s highly commended leak detection system, which attracts BREEAM credits.

The majority of stations are also being equipped with Toshiba’s high efficiency VN system, an air-to-air heat exchanger that captures energy that would otherwise be lost, significantly improving overall building energy efficiency.

Installation of air conditioning equipment is being carried out by Toshiba Accredited Installers Cool Breeze Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Ltd of Gateshead, and  Coolair Equipment Ltd of Dukinfield, on behalf of mechanical services contractors Balfour Beatty Engineering Services Ltd and Lorne Stewart plc.
